New York State Police announce Halloween traffic safety plan
Halloween, across New York, will see a dramatic increase in pedestrian traffic for obvious reasons. Halloween also provides the opportunity for people to gather together with family and friends. The goal of the State Police between today and Wednesday is to provide safe roads for everyone, especially for young children walking through neighborhoods. The state police plan increased patrols hoping that increased visibility and enforcement efforts will ensure that this upcoming time frame will be a safe one for people in western New York. The state police have planned a number of varying types of enforcement efforts: sobriety checkpoints, driving while intoxicated roving patrols, and aggressive driver enforcement efforts will be conducted at various locations in order to keep the roadways as safe as possible for travelers this weekend. Underage drinker initiatives, in which retail stores and/or establishments which sell alcohol will be checked to ensure that only those at least 21 years of age are allowed to purchase alcohol, will also be conducted.
